Alyssa sta partecipando a un campo naturalistico quando in un parco nel deserto vede un uovo di dinosauro. Ben presto il gruppo riparte e incontra un uomo sospetto...

My son got this at the library when they were clearing out old books, it looked interesting to him. It was a pretty decent book. He enjoyed it, I think he was really anxious to find out what happens to the dinosaur egg. The characters were ok and even though you start out rolling your eyes at one of them, by the end you're pulling for them. We would read more from this author.
